It is an art form, however, that is many centuries old and has been passed from generation to generation. It is not only a beautiful art form, but those that engage in its study and performance are doing a tremendous service in preserving an ancient cultural tradition which has survived many centuries of invasion, colonization, famine, and emigration. Becoming involved in Irish dancing not only teaches a respect for Irish culture but also discipline, self-confidence, creativity, conditioning, and cooperation. It is of paramount importance to maintain a teaching environment which is friendly, positive, nurturing, and fosters the enjoyment of dancing.
